KODAK Panchromatic Separation Film 2238 (ESTAR Base) is a black-and-white film intended for making archival black-and-white separation positives from color negative originals

KODAK Panchromatic Separation Film 2238 is a black-and-white film intended for making archival black-and-white separation positives from color negative originals. Other product applications for this film include special effects, density cover mattes, panchromatic masters from black-and-white negatives, and restoration work.

Compared with EASTMAN Panchromatic Separation Film 5235/SO-202, which this new film replaces, 2238 Film provides improved image structure (sharpness and highlight grain), improved raw stock keeping for more consistent results, faster drying, reduced propensity for ferrotyping, and the option to use higher processing temperatures. Improved spectral sensitization gives better color reproduction, similar to that of EASTMAN EXR Color Intermediate Film 5244/2244, (especially when using the recommended KODAK WRATTEN Gelatin Filter No.70 for the red exposure with subtractive or additive printing light sources).
